What's the width of your wheels? That would probably decide for me. I even have one bike that I run a 25mm in the front and a 28mm in the rear.

So a 35mm front rim and a 30mm rear rim - I'd say 28's would be the best option. The front should still be in the 105% rule with a rim that wide!

Has anybody racked up decent mileage yet on this rubber?

Yes. I binned this one today Image I hit a box cutter blade eight miles from home at the beginning of my ride. A Good Samaritan gave me a ride home. This is my first un-sealable tubeless puncture. The good news is that this tire is very easy to mount. Once I got home I quickly mounted a new one and managed to still get a ride in for the day. The damaged tire was very easy to come off and the new one went on with the help of a tire lever (I use levers because it's so much faster and it saves my thumbs)

Wow, That's a proper slash! Don't think any road tyre would of survived that.
Thankfully the blade stayed away from your rim! Good to hear about the easy fit of the tyres- what size have you been using?

I’m on 32s. Lovely ride on crappy roads. I rode on a mixture of tarmac and hard packed dirt roads today which have little to no vehicle traffic.

Riding 25mm at 75psi on the winter bike on terrible wet Hampshire lanes. They are easily the quickest, best handling and most comfortable tubed and tubeless tyre I've ever used.

Everywhwere I have looked the transparant seem to be out of stock until mid Febuary.

The transparant do look nice but judging from this thread they are a little heavier than the black versions.

Nice point. I'll take a few grams off somewhere else, LOL, since I'll make the sacrifice for aesthetics!

Thanks for the sizing feedback. I will grab some 25/28 black when they become available in the UK at non mental prices

Where'd you find a black 30? Everywhere I've seen is sold out.

I'll leave it up to you to figure out the other 30%. If you are in any way offended, that's on you.
